Hey! Did you guys know that September is National Yoga Month!? I love yoga and I think it’s a great idea to spend a month celebrating such an important mind/body exercise. The Department of Health and Human Services actually designated September as National Yoga Month in an effort to educate people about the health benefits of yoga and inspire a healthy lifestyle. A message I can completely get behind! For more information on National Yoga Month, you can visit the Yoga Health Foundation.
You all know I’ve professed my love for the brand Athleta with everything they’ve been up to lately including Yoga in Times Square, Yoga in Bryant Park and my awesome giveaway during Blogiversary Week! Well, they’re at it again with National Yoga Month and they’ve got some great ways to celebrate.
Free Online Yoga Classes
Athleta has teamed up with YogaGlo (which I still have not yet tried, so looking forward to this!), to offer three free online classes this month. They are offering a 20 minute Wake Up and Go vinyasa style class, a 30 minute Unwind at the End of Your Day Hatha class and a 45 minute Yoga for Athletes Vinyasa class. You can click here to view these classes.
Free Yoga In-Stores
Athleta is celebrating National Yoga Month nationwide with free in-store yoga events. You can click here to find a store and see what events are occurring in your area. In NYC, I’m looking forward to Sunday Salutations with Pure Yoga, more Bryant Park yoga and a restorative class!
This is YOUR chance to be featured on Athleta’s Chi Blog. Snap a photo of yourself striking a pose, write a few words about why you love yoga and tag is #ShareYourOm. Share it on social media and you could be chosen for a feature on Athleta’s blog! Plus you can check out everyone else’s cool photos! For more information, click here.
Readers, do you plan on participating in National Yoga Month? If you could attend any yoga event this month, what would it be?
